Sparta in Ancient Greece
Foundation
Sparta was founded by Lacedaemon, around the 1200's. He named it Sparta because of his name. Lacedaemon means Sparta in Greek. At first Sparta was a weak and small city state. Sparta was afraid of other city states. Soon Sparta grew, and overcame the sence of fear.
Sparta's Incredible Strength
Sparta, the most powerful city-state
in ancient Greece, had the strongest
army and the best war tactics.This was because war was the most important part of a spartan's life. It was enforced almost as law. Children were sent to the army at a very young age. They would spend almost the rest of their lives in the
army.
Average Life
Men
Women
Children
The average life for men could be either good or bad. If you served in the army, you would have a life of luxury. You could become part of the government.If you were a slave as a child, you could continue your life as a slave.
The average life for a woman was tough either way. If you were a slave as a kid, you would still be a slave. If you were married and was never a slave, you would continue to stay home and work all day.
Life for children was brutal. The boys were sent away to be in the army at age seven. They were trained very hard and punished with extreme pain. The girls were taught to be stay home mothers. They were taught how to cook, clean, and to take care of the children.

One of the main causes of the end of Sparta was the League of Corinth. Everybody in Greece was part of it except for Spart.
The league of Corinth
The League of Corinth was a group of different civilisations or cities formed together by alliances. It had no king because everyone was part of the leadership. Sparta did not join this league because they thought that they did not need the extra support. They also thought that they could defeat them alone. During the year 331 B.C, Sparta attacked Macedonia, a member of the League of Corinth, and failed. This left Sparta weak and without any help. Sparta was not attcked by the League of Corinth but was taken over by the Roman Empire.
